Your problems sound like mine. I was diagnosed to have disc prolapse. I am fine now after physiotherapy sessions and use of lumbar belt that my doctor prescribed me. Try asking your doctor for the same.

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement Dr. Swetal Bhavsar's  Response
Back pain may be from spondylitis , arthritis of facets , disc prolapse , nerve impingement or muscles...some uncommon but not rare causes are infection & tumors.
Back pain with leg pain is usually due to radiating pain of pressure on nerves.
Don't neglect if there is numbness and tingling or weakness in muscles or bladder bowel dysfunction.
Please get MRI of spine done after baseline X rays and blood Investigations. It costs about 200 USD in India. Once we find out exact cause we can treat the problem in a true way.

I am a 24 year old male. I am currently experiencing inner knee pain in my right leg when standing from a squat/seated position. I can walk and even sprint just fine, the pain only seems to occur when I put weight on my right leg while it is in a more acute position (less than about 140 degrees). I have been experiencing this for about a week. What do you think the problem is? What can I do/ what should I avoid to alleviate the problem, and how long will it take to heal?

Hi. I have pain burning, stinging in my right knee. It started with a small area the size and dime, and only lasted a few minutes. I would have no problems for weeks or months. Recently that same knee was burning,stinging of the in tire knee cap and lasted for 4 hours and. My right knee is beginning to feel the same just a shorter period of time. My knees don t hurt like bones hitting but when I work out I hear a great amount of grinding noise. This pain arrives quick and strong and leaves just as quickly.

My left knee has strong pain when I get up from a chair. Three weeks ago, I got into my sister s big truck and when we were finished with a long drive, I almost could not stand on it. Then pain came on the inside of my knee and back side every time I get up or am sitting for too long. What did I do, and how can I help my knee heal.

Hi - I have numerous non-specific symptoms: fatigue, digestive problems (early satiety, poor appetite, constipation, excessive wind, bloating etc.), chronic pain (not relieved by standard issue pain meds/cannot tolerate) head, neck, shoulders, mid and lower back and what feels like nerve pain in left thigh etc. Also mouth ulcers and some difficulties swallowing. Persistent pain ULQ and what feels like a bulge in intestine under left ribcage (I can pop this back in by putting pressure on it). I have life long incontinence issues and recurrent UTI s over last few years. I am 57 yrs old and highly motivated by my career - I have no undue social stressors. At this point, while my doctor is an OK practioner I do not feel heard and I do not have the energy to argue my case...I run the risk of being categorised as difficult/fussy/ageing/hypocondriac etc etc but I am exhausted at being dismissed and given the run around. I have positive ANA for several years. Comments or suggestions would be most welcome. Thanks...Karen

I had fusion spine surgery on c-2 -c6 because I have spasmatic torticollis involentery my brain triggers chronic pain wore my protein between my spine bones . I had surgery March 17, this year 2and a half months ago. My spasms pulls my ncck down. They don t have a neck brass to fit me. Will this weaken my bone mass or wii my neck get strong like it was before my surgery? Very scared. My spasms never pulled my neck down and I know the first 12weeks your neck nots to pull down so the bone mass can fuse around my spine bone.

Hello Doctor Grief; my name is Richard Hartsfield, from Alabama. I am a 61 year old veteran and I have been suffering chronic pain (90% arthritic), amongst other things. My doctors at the V.A. in Birmingham, Alabama have been looking after my needs until 16 to 20 months ago. I was told by my doctor at the V.A. that he was being mandated by his SUPERIORES that he was to start the process of taking myself along with all other Veterans that eventually practically all Vets would not be getting any narcotic pain relievers I was fortunate to have an old high school buddy who is a physician refer me to another physician who would see to my needs. I take anywhere from 150 to 170m.g. s of methadone for a long time and am afraid that ,(well I,m afraid that for some unforseeable reason, that I won t be able to get the meds I need. I am a caretaker for my 86 year old mother and it is a gut wrenching thing to watch her slowly die a little each day. To make a long storey short, I am looking ahead and will eventually need my pain meds (legally) each month without the stress of worrying if I will be able to get my meds. Respectfully, Richard Hartsfield
